The magnetization properties of magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) changed by the action of the buffer and serum solutions with different viscosities were analyzed using dc and ac magnetometers that utilized high-temperature superconductivity-superconducting quantum interference devices. The magnetization properties of MNPs in different solutions with different viscosities were measured using a dc magnetometer via vibrating the sample under a dc magnetic field. The harmonic signal characteristics of the MNPs in different solutions were measured in a low-frequency magnetic field. In addition, the dynamic changes in the magnetic characteristics of MNPs in different solutions were measured using an ac magnetometer with a high frequency. The results corresponding to the low- and high-frequency fields showed that both viscosity of the solvent and the interactions between the MNPs and the solvent are important influencing factors in immunoassays using MNPs.
